Flights from London to cuba...

Currently I am touring the Indian Ocean area and use a Canadian passport (born there). I am looking at travelling in Cuba in the next year ( or 2??) and while matrix.itasoftware.com is blocked for Cuba, I have noticed that KLM and AF both fly into HAV from Europe, but ...

Are there any other airlines/carriers going from Europe to HAV and totally missing the USA? Landing in other non-USA territories/countries is fine. Yes, I also know about SU...

Thanks in advance.

What's the requirement to not fly over the U.S.? It may not make a difference if you don't want the U.S. to know.

CU might well be your safest bet in such a case.

As a Canadian I am VERY familiar with US Border Control paranoia/behaviour. I prefer to enter the 'Excited States" (Thank You Al Fotheringham, Canadian Journalist) by land and avoid air travel into/outta or through the USA. Unfortunately, Canadian airlines fly over the USA to/from Cuba so USA-imposed rules still apply (and that was a political decision Canada made).

I am not at all concerned if the Yankees know if I fly over their country, BUT I just despise their handling of me as a potential terrorist/?? However, it is their country

As an aside, check this discussion about how some Canadians feel about the USA's collection of "data" etc... especially on the etc..
